DIY Project Ideas to Motivate and Inspire

It’s Spring DIY Project Time!

This week we are getting excited about spring DIY project ideas! Now that winter is behind us we can’t think of a better time than now to try some new craft projects.  These are fun, easy and a great way to use faux florals or spare craft supplies you have on hand.  Spring decor is all about bringing the fresh organic feel of the outside in.  And as the weather warms up we all look forward to bringing our decor ideas outside too.  These spring crafts do just that!

DIY Project: Indoor Garden Ideas

How much do we all love succulents?  I mean, really!!  Especially when they are put together in a cute planter like this!  We love this simple DIY Faux Succulent Planter that Amanda at Domestically Creative made.  It combines all the elements of a springtime craft that we CRAVE:  Simple, easy and black-thumb-proof.  Just because you don’t have gardening skills doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy the look of this mini indoor garden.

However, if you’re feeling extra feisty and want to give REAL succulents a try, take a look at this DIY Driftwood Succulent Planter that I posted last spring.  This project will last all year long if you water it regularly and sit it near a sunny window! My whole family loved this project.
